Today we’ll salute a patriot, not American but brave none the less.
Alex McIlveen, 45 A HERO cabbie who took on the Glasgow Airport terror suspects told yesterday how he kicked one of the jihadi in the nads so hard that he tore a tendon in his foot.
“The guy in the passenger seat was wearing a white T-shirt. He got out carrying what looked like a petrol bomb and seconds later the Jeep was in flames.
“Then he kicked and punched a man to the ground before punching a policeman square in the face. That’s when I saw red. That sort of thing just isn’t on.
“I told my passenger to run for her life, then I went for the man in the T-shirt and managed to skelp him in the face. I followed it up by booting him twice.”
“I’ve heard people say since that he was shouting ‘Allah!’ but I didn’t hear that. It just sounded like a lot of crap to me.
“I ran for the guy and punched him twice in the face with pretty good right hooks.
“Then I kicked him with full force right in the balls but he didn’t go down. He just kept on babbling his rubbish.
“I couldn’t believe that he was still standing. I know I would have been floored by that kind of kick.”
Well, the suspect Khalid Ahmed, a Lebanese doctor was flaming at that point, so he probably had other searing pain to deal with.
Rock on Alex!

Drama Daddy says
I may be related to this guy. McLveen is my grandmother’s maiden name. She never kicked anyone in the nads.(well maybe my grandfather)I heard her threaten him one time when she said, “Keep it in your pants or prepare to dance!” I was encouraged to see a cab driver with courage and my family name. Woe to the terrorists out there. Mr. McIlveen’s foot will heal.
We honor the McLveen family name. A brave soul. Love the story about your grandmother!
